Cultural & Performing SpacesWith their strong social character, cultural spaces are the beating heart of communities and neighbourhoods. Cultural facilities and performing arts spaces that help articulate and express cultural ideas are essential to any community’s identity. They behave as valuable civic resources that provide education, access, exchange of creative discourse, and plenty of opportunities for cultural expression. By serving residents, tourists and related businesses, they are also key to the economic health of a vibrant, world-class city. Our track record is in award-winning, purpose-built buildings for arts and culture such as the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, which helps us understand how front-of-house and back-of-house spaces must be an integrated, holistic unit that works equally for audience, performers and crew. As cultural destinations, every additional space – intimate or large – that serves to add youth, energy and life becomes an important element within a cohesive whole.
With experience in designing libraries and archives, venues of all types for music, dance, opera and drama, and facilities for broadcasting and film production, DP is well-poised to build conducive environments that support the artistic development of both contemporary and traditional arts groups, drawing charm and inspiration from the rich cultural heritage in the areas our projects are located in.
